Atletico Madrid are the final club to feature on this list, as Diego Simeone is reportedly still looking to add creativity to his squad.
So far this season, Atleti have earned 10 points from four matches in less than convincing fashion, scoring seven times, which is already six fewer goals than the likes of Real. Last season, Atletico’s game style was unsuccessful against opponents such as Chelsea in the Champions League, as they created virtually nothing over the course of two legs, and scored 67 league goals, which means that they were heavily reliant on their defence.
Once again, at a cut-price fee and having missed out on the likes of Bernardo Silva in the summer transfer window due to the price that Manchester City were demanding, the signature of James could be useful contingency plan if he is able to replicate his previous form from his time in Spain.
Rodriguez is priced at 16/1 to join Atletico.
